Ohhh so this time you made a post HERE to talk to yourself and then left? :P
Anywhoo...I have a lot to say about today's LM...
Firstly let's talk about Soumya's performance...WOW WOW WOW...the kind of GRACE this child has, bade bade logon mein nahin hoti...I remember the last time I loved a performance this KADAK from her, it was that "aaja nachle" act she did a few weeks back which Terence himself praised to the skies as well.
And today just WOW...what beautiful choreography...the song so CREATIVELY mixed to add in the kathak beats...on a slightly off-topic note...since I dunno if you bothered to visit your *ahem* somewhat controversial thread in the other dance show forum...I was given samples by ppl trying to explain to me how perfect Ms. expressionless acrobat is in that show...have you seen THAT performance on Pareshaan? You should if you can...watching Soumya dance so FLAWLESSLY on this song today and then hearing Geeta and co.'s comments afterwards just had me shaking my head in sadness...and a bit of bemusement on some level cuz how much do you want to bet that the brainless ACROBATICS performed on this song in the name of "dance" in the other show would have been lauded oh so much.
I can't explain how much it irritates me that genuine PURE dance is hardly appreciated anymore...GYMNASTICS are being passed off as dance...where is the ARTISTRY? The CREATIVITY?
THANK GOD for ppl like Raghav...who btw I felt the worst for today...much more than for Soumya...cuz Geeta still conveniently praised Soumya for being a great dancer, period but just BRUSHED Raghav aside! DISMISSED his wonderful choreography! Hadh hai! And the comments were so SENSELESS for the act...WHAT didn't you connect with regarding the song Geeta ji? EXPLAIN toh karein...
What's hilarious is that she connected with that random GYMNAST ON ROPES act that Faizal performed which btw had NO connection to the song and THAT was the performance of the day? Seriously I have no words for the STUPIDITY of today's epi...I really like Faizal but that was NOT choreography...it was random acrobatics and NOT dance...and THAT is what you call worthy of giving a standing ovation? Wow.
Anyways LOVED Riteish's genuine praise for the act and Geeta looked PISSED seeing him comment in praise
Apart from this I also LOVED Rohan's act...like seriously MINDBLOWING out of this world choreography...and this kid just takes Raghav's choreography to a whole another level...there was so much GENIUS in this act, I need to watch it a few times to actually manage to list out all the nuances of choreography that blew me away...that one bit where Rohan alternates b/w the slow mo and being pulled back by something...GENIUS...
As for the rest...WHAT is Shalini still doing in this competition...your time's up kid...seriously she can't even hold on to basic BALANCE...aise log abhi bhi competition mein hain...amazing...and that Om kid...god he annoys the hell out of me.
And finally I must talk about Jeet even though this out of the Raghav domain that this topic is about...but dude I LOVE THAT KID...and these judges are not being fair to him either...that guy is a PATAKHA...Till date I'm yet to see a satisfying performance on Man Mohini but this kid just BLEW ME AWAY today...he's SIX...freakin SIX...and what BEAT SENSE he has...what a sense of rhythm and timing...he's a TRUE prodigy...I toh think he's already beyond the scope of this competition at such a young age...the intelligence that shines through with his ability to INSTANTLY pick up a step...do any style and do it SO well...and what expressions...COMPLETE package he is...I watch him in awe every time, no joke...I can sit and watch any performance of his on repeat...especially the last few toh have been SUPER awesome.
The way the voting is being obviously rigged at this point...there are chances of Rohan leaving next week...if not him then someone from Prince's team...it's obvious ab inhi teams mein se kisi ko nikaalenge to leave every skipper with just one contestant...Shalini should go...seems like Om is here to stay even though that kid seriously I dunno what he is dancing.
